National Creme-Filled Chocolates Day | Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

Happy Valentine’s Day, lovelies! It’s the day of heart, a day to celebrate love and relationships. You know what I love? FOOD. And these sandwich cookies in particular.

National Creme-Filled Chocolates Day is wonderfully appropriate for today and I’m happy to share it. It’s definitely one of my favorites thus far! Making sandwiches composed of soft chocolate cookies with a sweet marshmallow cream definitely beats having to fill an actual chocolate candy with cream, which is what I originally had in mind.

I’m not skilled enough for that.

These cookies were born because those delicious devil’s food cookies that I ate as a kid crossed my mind. However, I want something more visually appealing and where I could use colorful sprinkles. Call me a child, but I can’t get enough of them!

These cookies turned out perfect- like a soft Oreo cookie. Especially right out of the fridge. I may make another batch today. We should be honoring them anyway, right? Added sugar on Valentine’s Day is not only completely appropriate, but also encouraged. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach after all.
